Hi

I would like higher resolution snapshots of my movies. I do a snapshot of a one frame movie for making pictures. If I try to enlarge it, it looks like crap.

Here's what I mean:

Anyway to fix that?

Hi Blickfang

I've used VLC media player to generate snap shots of videos and got really good results.
  • Save Muvizu video as an avi file
  • Playback in VLC media play
  • In video menu in VLC there is a snap shot option
  • Snap shot will be saved on desktop or in PC's "Pictures" file

What size do you need your thumbnails?

Typically, you're not going to get a higher resolution image than the resolution of your video. So if you're exporting as 1080p, your biggest thumb size will be 1920x1080 - about 2 MP.

If that's the size you want, then export your movie as a targa sequence and you'll have a still for every single frame in your movie.

If you need bigger than that, and have Photoshop, you can enlarge multiple times in very small increments (like boosting to 101%) until you get to the size you want. Boosting the size many times in tiny increments seems to work best for enlarging to help avoid image degradation.
